Thumbs up to spring.

We’re so glad it’s FINALLY getting warmer and more pleasant outside that all we have are thumbs up today. In the spirit of spring, let’s call them green thumbs.

A Powell teenager who had been missing since the weekend has been found and is safe, the Park County Sheriff's Office said Thursday morning.

"The Park County Sheriff's Office wishes to express our appreciation to the concerned citizens who provided information aiding in our investigation and to those who provided comfort and support to the family," the office said in a posting on its Facebook page.

Bad money chases out good, Sir Thomas Gresham famously said in 1558, commenting on how people chose to disperse coins made of inferior material and hoard those of greater value.

The same thing goes for ideas, it seems to us. Among the weaker information that has been passed about in recent years is a fear of vaccinations for children.

Many farmers in the Big Horn Basin chased sunset this weekend as they tried to catch up on field work. They’ve lost time to a stubborn winter and a slow-to-emerge spring.

Farmers are on our minds right now.

We wish them well as spring planting gets underway. The long, cold, damp winter of 2013-14, which is officially over but, like an unwelcome guest who ignores hints to depart, is sticking around.

GOP candidate denounces federal government, calls Obama an ‘idiot’ 

Dr. Taylor Haynes really didn’t want to run for governor but God insisted, he said in Powell Tuesday night.

“The Lord won’t give me peace if I don’t do it,” Haynes said during a question-and-answer session on the Northwest College campus.

The eerie final flight of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 calls to mind another mystery flight that ended with the deaths of all aboard.

But while Flight 370 ended in the cold, deep waters of the southern Indian Ocean, according to Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak, the other flight came to earth in the barren Upper Midwest of the United States.
